The Importance of Self-LoveRecent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. Research in the new discipline of neuro-cardiology shows that the heart is a sensory organ and a sophisticated center for receiving and processing information. The nervous system within the heart (or “heart brain”) enables it to learn, remember, and make functional decisions independently from the brain. Moreover, numerous experiments have demonstrated that the signals the heart continuously sends to the brain influence the function of higher brain centers involved in perception, cognition, and emotional processing.
The heart communicates information throughout the body via electromagnetic field interactions and generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field. Compared to the electromagnetic field produced by the brain, the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is approximately 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers.
Why should this type of information not only be fascinating to us, but also important to our own wellness? Because it demonstrates that sustained positive emotions and self-love appear to give rise to a distinct mode of heart functioning. This mode is linked with a notable reduction in internal mental dialogue, reduced perceptions of stress, increased emotional balance, and enhanced mental clarity.
At Creative Health Institute, we offer wellness programs that not only offer a natural way to cleanse the body, but the 'heart' of our program is offering guests a place to come to focus on self-care and self-love. The importance of inventorying one’s mental dialogue, one’s relationships, and one’s self-care routine are monumental when approaching your health in a holistic way.
Everything that has happened to you has left an impact. Each cell has distinct memories based on the human experience. At CHI, you can discover ways to seek more positive outcomes in future events, as well as re-shape how you visit old memories that may be holding you back from genuine self-love. This February when society reminds us it’s time to show love to others with candy and flowers, be sure to show the same love to yourself.
